AVPC does a fabulous job getting one on the water to either kayak or paddle board. On Sat. May 12, our son invited my wife and I to go kayaking as a Mother's Day present. Being one of the first truly warm days this spring, the wait was just over 45 min., but once on the water, who cares. The dock is located in Portage Bay, so you are 1/2 way between Lake WA and Lake Union. We chose to go to Lake Union as there was a quite a bit of boat traffic and the Mountlake Cut can get congested and choppy. If you stick around Portage Bay or venture to Lake Union, be sure to take a look at the collection of house boats, something unique to Seattle. If you do go towards Lake Union, look for the house boat featured in the movie Sleepless in Seattle, it is located on the south shore, opposite Gas Works Park. When you decide to try this Seattle attraction out, you might wish to bring a change of clothes, as more likely than not you will be splashed.
